We urge clear goals for
1. Invest in public transportation to ensure frequent, reliable, convenient, affordable and universally accessible service;
2. Create incentives to encourage greater use of mass transit and discourage the use of private vehicles;
3. Mandate better co-ordination between land use planning and transportation planning to create more compact communities.
Advocacy goals for gettingthere.ca, a special project of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), Stratford, Ontario.
The goals originated in a national resolution, proposed by CFUW Scarborough (Ontario) as long ago as 1992. The resolution was passed at a CFUW AGM, and became a part of CFUW national (cfuw.org) policy, available to all member clubs for advocacy at municipal, provincial and federal levels.
